Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks: Roly Poly-Rudolph and Season's Greetings Banner

Hello everyone and welcome to day two of the Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks!!! Don't you just love all the new goodies so far...are we getting you excited about Christmas?? Wait till you see what we have created for you today but first...

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the TE Blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win. 

My first card features the adorable Roly Poly-Rudolph die...isn't he cute!!! The base was created with the Stitched Circle Stacklet die and then all the elements were adhered....the snout was popped up with a foam dot. The sentiment which was stamped on a Stitched Circle Stacklet diecut is from the In & Out-Christmas set.

The Santa belt was created with Oreo cardstock and the Santa buckle die from the previously released Sack It To You die set was used to cut the buckle out of Metallic Neutrals-Gold cardstock and it was adhered to the black *belt*. 

The inside was finished off with the sentiment from the In & Out-Christmas set. It was stamped with Memento Lady Bug on the Stitches Circle Stacklet diecut and matted with Cherry Pop. The patterned paper adds a burst of color to the inside. 

My second card features the Season's Greetings was cut out of Mulled Wine cardstock and adhered to the Toffee cardstock card base. The background panel was embossed with the Nordic Holiday Embossing Folder and a white craft ink pad was run across the raised embossing for a little dimension.  The circle was cut with a Stitched Circle Stacklet out of Mulled Wine, the deer was cut with the Little Bits-Reindeer die out of Toffee, and the trees from the Build a Scene-Winter Trees were cut out of Sweet Basil and Old Olive cardstock. 

The previously released Skinny Mini Borders 2 die was used to cut the zig zag border and the and the snowflakes were cut with the Little Bits-Confetti Snowflakes dies....both were cut out of Old Olive cardstock.

Really great cards. I particularly like the use of the Nordic embossing folder.
